Par Jessica Anya Blau, author, THE WONDER BREAD SUMMER - Publié sur Amazon.com
Dixon has such a clear, strong voice that after reading him for a long period of time I hear him in my head dictating my moves (driving in traffic, bickering with my husband). This book has so many stories you can leave it around the house, pick it up at random moments and read the first one that catches your attention. That is how I am reading it and, so far, every story has been startling, original, often-funny, sometimes heart-breaking, and always jarring in the way that it forces me to think about what it means to really be alive.

I'm the guy who stumbled upon Dixon in the mid-'80s. I've since collected every book he's ever published. When I first learned there'd finally be this volume of uncollected stories, I peed my pants accordingly.
You can't argue with it. Here are 60some stories of all stripes you've never gotten to read before. Hardbound and in a handsome dust jacket. My god, the volume is signature-sewn bound!!!
I have to ding off a star because I guess no galleys were run off for anyone to proof in this day and age. Even though, to this day, Dixon composes only on a typewriter. The miracle is that the raw data entry for this project let slip so few word-based typos, especially considering Dixon's playful attitude about that wordy thang. But someone fell completely asleep when it came time for punctuation, and spacing, and particularly both types of quotation marks. Every story is filled with such embarrassing speed bumps. It's sad.

The Girl with the Strawberry Birthmark a majority of the stories are total nonsense. Like listening to the conversation between two people with a past history bound by intimacies and the human connection who don't like each other only tolerate. No color no descriptions only life in the bare. His characters live in the twilight zone and are at the core of what we could be if we aren't careful. I suppose that is the reason I keep reading this mindless mass of words. Marshall Dell
